Now about Actor Slates:
Actor Slates are a unique tool for promoting yourself as an actor. It is an online service available through Actors Access.
Actor Slates highlight the actor's personality so that it is like having a general interview in front of the casting director, agent or manager viewing your video.
Actor Slates are taped and edited at Chelsea Studios in Los Angeles and Kipperman Casting in New York. About Chelsea Studios: Chelsea Studios began operations in 1982 as a videotape casting facility in Hollywood, Ca. Through the years, Chelsea has worked on thousands of national commercials, feature films and television shows. In 2005, Chelsea merged its casting facility operations with On Your Mark Studios, located in Sherman Oaks. In 2002, Chelsea produced its first feature documentary, Testimony of the Human Spirit, which tells the story of six Holocaust survivors all presently living and teaching in Westchester County, New York. Recently, Chelsea has produced films for the Central Park Conservancy and the Public Art Fund in New York.1. Stanley Zucker owns and Mitchell Russell operates Chelsea Studios and is well known in the business. Mitch does everything from directing sessions, to editing Actor Slates, running the office, booking talent, as well as casting talent. Our director, Mitch, works with you in a professional, stress free manner to guide you through your taping session. You will be asked a series of questions that are designed to bring out different aspects of your personality. We will show you, matter of fact, funny or humorous, emotional or introspective, philosophical or silly. We attempt to get to your core...what makes you tick as a person, what makes you shine as an actor. The responses you give in your interview will make your Actor Slate unique, as no two people will respond the same way.
The interview will provide us with approximately twelve minutes of video footage and then that material will be edited to one minute's worth of video clips that best represents you. You can also add your Actor Slate to online submissions done through Actors Access.
We find that casting directors enjoy viewing the Actor Slates because it gives them the opportunity to get a feel of who you are. The more they know about you, the better your chances of being called in for an audition. There have also been a significant number of actors who have been called in by and signed to talent agencies and management companies.
We hope that you choose to take advantage of this exciting tool that can only be a benefit to you and your career as an actor!
